Joe Piscopos double gave matawan a 2 run cushion. Mike Creamer pitched the 6th after Nick Santuccio pitched 5 effective innings. Rob Marshall earned his 5th save in 5 tries.

Matawan Battles Back = “Bears”

Matawan found themselves down 4-0 in the first inning due to a few miscues but battled back to defeat Ocean Twp 9-5.  Shawn Johnson went 5 2/3 innings giving up 5 runs, 2 earned striking out 2 and walking 3.  Robert Marshall picked up a 4 out save, his fourth of the year.  Matawan had 3 runs in the 2nd and 4th in the comeback.  Johnson also went 3 for 4 with a triple and an RBI while Dan Incle and Justin Harnett each collected 2 hits and 2 runs scored. 

Marshall also collected his first varsity hit.  Many Huskies contributed – Justin Henderson had a big hit in the 3 run second as did Corey Nusbaum and Matt Rackett had a big 2 strike hit in the bottom of the 6th where the Huskies added on 2 IMPORTANT RUNS.
